Birthday Cards for Ronald McDonald House

Welcome to the Birthday Cards for Ronald McDonald House Hop. For this hop we've all made cards which will be donated to RMHC for the families staying there to use. It's an amazing charity that lessens the burden for families with a sick child. These cards may be a small token but I know will be truly appreciated. Sarah will be collecting cards for the next 3 weeks to send to RMHC in Lubbock TX if you would also like to make and send a card. You can find her address and more info here.
If you've come from Jennyfer's blog then you're in the right place. If you just happened to come across my blog today you're sure to want to start at the beginning, Sarah's blog so you don't miss one thing.

There are 2 wonderful prizes for this hop. The first is some goodies from Sarah. To be eligible to win comment on each blog throughout the hop. You don't need to follow each of us but we'd love it if you did!
The second prize is a stamp set and crinkle ribbon bundle from Mae Sunshine Designs. One person chosen from all who send their cards to Sarah to receive this prize. Each card sent equals 1 entry! 

For my card I made this adorable shaped card with balloons, suitable for a boy or girl.

What did I use?
Scraptastical Kreations ~ "KISS Birthday", "Label It, Tag It, Frame It"
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Simple Simon"
Craft cardstock and various scraps from my stash
Twine, bling, Colorbox chalk inks, white Gelly Roll pen
Glossy Accents
HotPaws writing tool for the Cameo

Here's the complete line-up should you lose your way:

I'm your last stop on the hop today. Be sure to stop by Sarah's blog for the address and info to send your birthday cards.
I hope you've enjoyed the hop and you were inspired in some way!

Put A Ring on It Hop

Welcome to The Put A Ring On It Hop! If you came from Nadja's blog you're in the right place. If you just happened upon my page today, start at the beginning, Melanie's Blog, so you don't miss one fabulous thing!

Since May is such a  popular month for weddings we're making projects with at LEAST 2 CIRCLES on them. Here is my project with LOTS of circles!! I thought these fun pictures of my son playing with his Sit N Spin would work very well with this theme. I love how it came out. I tried coloring in the title (one of my favorite 80's songs) with some pencils but it wasn't the look I wanted so I added some Icicle Stickles, because everything's better with Stickles. and brownies, brownies make everything better too. 

Paper is DCWV and The Paper Studio
Scraptastical Kreations cutting files "Circle Frame",
 "Element Me This"
Icicle Stickles
Hot Paws writing tool for the Cameo
Prisma Pencils
The Paper Studio bling
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
All That Stickles ~ Icicles
